video: “True Romance” Actors Showreel
Back in 2012 I filmed a scene for a couple of actors for their showreel. It is common for new actors to recreate a scene from a film to showcase their acting abilities to casting directors. We chose a short scene from the film “True Romance” by Tony Scott.
This scene is where the two main characters meet for the first time in a dinner and had some great dialogue for our actors to perform to.
I shot this on a Canon 5d Mk II with audio recorded separately. I shot from four different angles, one for each actors individual performance and then a wide front and back shot. I later pieced it all together and synced the audio in Adobe Premier to produce the resulting short scene.
